Im Rahmen von Erasmus+ werden sich Lehrer und Schüler der Roseggerschule zusammen mit Kollegen und Schülern aus Großbritannien,
Italien, Schweden und der Türkei 3 Jahre damit beschäftigen, wie Schülerfirmen arbeiten. Dabei vergleichen die Schüler ihre Arbeit
in Schülerfirmen, finden heraus, welche Schlüsselqualifikationen für den Übergang in den Beruf besonders wichtig sind und was wir
von unseren europäischen Nachbarn lernen können.
Bei internationalen Treffen in Newcastle, Todi und Waldbröl lernen sich die jungen Europäer besser kennen und tauschen ihre Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse aus.
Wir werden mailen, skypen, uns über die Internet-Plattform „Twinspace“ austauschen und uns auch gegenseitig besuchen, um gemeinsam an Themen zu arbeiten, Exkursionen zu machen und möglichst viel voneinander zu lernen.
Unsere Arbeitssprache dabei ist Englisch, so dass die Schülerinnen und Schüler viel Übung im Sprechen, Schreiben und Präsentieren bekommen werden.
Wir freuen uns sehr, auf drei spannende Jahre im Zeichen Europas.
Civic welcome for foreign visitors
Published Monday 23rd November 15
CIVIC leaders in Hartlepool this week welcomed nine foreign teachers to the town as part of a European school-based project.
The teachers, from Sweden, Germany, Italy and Turkey are being hosted by the town's Catcote Academy as part of the Erasmus+ project and are spending a full week in Hartlepool.
The three year project has been created by Barry Currell, a teacher at Catcote Academy with the aim of linking education and employment. This has been funded by Europe and will give Hartlepool students the opportunity to visit each or the partner countries and learn from European counterparts.
The visitors were welcomed at the Civic Centre by Hartlepool Mayor, Councillor Mary Fleet, the Mayoress Councillor Sheila Griffin and Councillor Chris Simmons, the Council's chair of Children's Services Committee.
Speaking at the Civic Centre, Alan Chapman, Headteacher of Catcote Academy, said: "I would like to thank the Mayor and civic representatives for hosting our special guests. Our visitors been blown away with what they have seen already in Hartlepool and there is still much for them to see."
"We get great support from the Council and this project is just one example of how everyone is working together to provide the best possible support and opportunities for young people."
Hartlepool Mayor Councillor Mary Fleet, said: "We are very proud of our town and I sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay here and find it rewarding.
"The Erasmus+ project is a great idea where schools learn from one another and ensure that young people are given the right skills and confidence to succeed in life."
The project enables the schools involved to share good practice as well as enabling students to visit and experience the culture of other European countries.
The five country partnership involves schools who cater for children and young people with disabilities along with mainstream schools. The focus of the Erasmus+ project is on enterprise, entrepreneurship and helping prepare students for employment.
One of the visitors, headteacher Margaret Hampe, from a school in Waldbroel, Germany, commented: "We have children with learning difficulties and it's important for us to teach them to speak and read but transition to work is most important."
"We have enterprises in our school as Catcote Academy has and we are hoping to get some new ideas from our visit. I am deeply impressed with what I have seen in Hartlepool so far."
"Catcote Academy has a long tradition of promoting enterprises in the school and at national level and children are learning lots of things to help get them into work in later life."
